According to this, the contract Yashin signed was 10 years for $87.5 mil. Minus the 24% rollback and that would make it 10 years for $66.5 mil. Since the cap hit is the average over the length of the contract, his average cap hit should be $6.65 mil.
I could only wish that was true(ie cap hit below even my projections). But the problem is the contract was structured in the way that he got paid less the first 3 and last 3 years. The middle years he makes the bulk of that contract. For cap purposes do they count the years before the contract for cap hit purposes or just the years remaining(ie years 5-10). In a cap world where every dollar counts, 6.65 million is easier to deal with then 7+ million.

I've always read a few different articles claiming he made either 87.5 or 88.8 or 89.8 million over those 10 years.
